Over the last 3 weeks, I’ve talked to over 30 entrepreneurs about what’s stopping them from getting the results they want.
And I heard all the typical responses:
- And MORE about money
Which of these things do you think are stopping you???
I know that you are familiar with this list!
I know you think these things are holding you back as well, right?
I don’t want to burst your bubble, but those things are NOT the real problem!!!
OK, hear me out on this one…
These things you think are stopping you… Those are just SYMPTOMS!
So… Tell me Margaret… What is the real problem?
It’s your ability to problem solve and take action!
Money is the #1 complaint I hear about… so let’s get really frank about that one.
Money? Money is everywhere if you are willing to problem solve and take action…
Do you want it bad enough to go after the money you need to grow your business? Or do you use a lack of funds as an excuse so you don’t have to move forward?
When I started my business I was in the middle of divorce, going through bankruptcy and a single parent to 3 teenagers…
I was willing to:
- Sell my stuff – including my car
- Get rid of cable TV
- Downsize my lifestyle
- Live below my means
- Got a part-time job
I wanted it bad enough to get the money I needed to invest in a great coach!
It was important enough to me to do this… That’s how bad I wanted to get my business off the ground.
How bad do you want it?
Bad enough to solve the problems??
I want you to learn to think like a successful entrepreneur.
That requires that you change your thinking…
Ask yourself the following question for each of the problems you are having…
What are 3 ways I could solve this problem?
Every day for a week, put at least 3 more different and creative ideas on your list.
I’ll bet at the end of the week, you’ll have at least 1 or 2 actions that you are willing to take.
And if you’re not willing to do anything on your list, then you need to ask “how bad do I really want this?”
